FOWC with Fandango: Lucrative

Today was the collection of unwanted bulky goods in our village. It happens twice a year. We have a complete hodgepodge of goods on the street waiting to be collected. There is everything you can imagine from armchairs, beds, and lamps.

Someone even put a complete bed sofa outside, which had hardly ever been used. Yes, it was me. I had a deal with my neighbour that when the time came he would put it outside for me and yesterday the time had come. He is fully equipped with rollers and in five minutes it was outside. Today the lorry came and took everything and at last this white elephant of a sofa disappeared from my life. I was so glad.

As you can see from the collection there is a bit of everything. Someone had about 500 old music casettes and I felt for their previous owner. We also had a few hundred but I had thrown them out gradually in the garbage bags. If you really need something then you can drive around in a truck and take what you find before the men from the authorities arrive and dispose of everything. We often see the trucks in the early morning. That is probably the lucrative part of it all, when they know how to sell the unwanted goods.

There are still some objects on the surrounding streets, but these are all metallic. For some reason the state collects metal separately. Probably it is disposed of in a different place.

  1. We have this too in our town, spring and fall clean-up. I am very grateful for those days as it saves me trips to the dump. It is also a good time to reflect as i am always embarrassed by the amount of things we put out.

  2. In our town you get 2 vouchers a year for collection of bulky goods and then you are allocated a specific date. The neighbour down the road must have misunderstood or mixed up the dates – his rubbish has been littering the street for the last two weeks.
